Be Healthy When Working With Toxic Fumes

Posted by on 11/14/2017 to General

Sometimes when you’re working with electronic components, you might encounter toxic fumes. How can you be safe while still getting your work done? Read on for a guide to safety in this environment.

Toxic fumes can come from the exposed electronics you interact with during your day. You may not notice a problem at all, but repeated exposure to materials such as lead, mercury vapor, or methanol will result in severe health concerns later in life. Women who are exposed to these materials run the risk of having children with severe congenital disabilities. Making sure that your workspace is clear of these fumes is vital to your health and your family’s.

Ensure your workspace is well ventilated. If there’s nowhere for fumes to go, then they’ll end up in your lungs. With proper ventilation, the fumes can leave the workspace before harming you. Good ventilation can mean fans blowing fumes out a window or door, a ventilator in the room, or a fume hood. The best choice for you depends on the layout of your lab.

Wear proper protective gear. Are you working with anything hot or caustic that could burn you? Make sure your skin is covered with gloves or heat-proof clothing. A mask can help you avoid toxic fumes or any electronic dust that would hurt your lungs. Respirators should also be nearby in the case of an emergency.

Any potentially toxic materials need to be stored correctly. Keep electronics in ventilated areas that are heat and humidity controlled. This reduces the number of toxic fumes that are released into the air.

At Waveroom Plus, we can provide you with all the materials you need to be safe while you work with electronics. Your personal safety in your workspace is highly important. Contact us today to learn how to stay safe and do your job effectively.
